I'm trying to figure out why some think this seems to be an either/or proposition. Granted, much attention has been given to rumors of Jony Ive's plans and direction for the visual aspects of iOS.

The off-center "iPhone" and apple logo is new. I kinda like it.
  This post is nothing more than an emotionally-driven blathering screed containing a muddle of plainly incorrect rejections of facts ("it is actually bullshit" that Apple is paying what they owe) immediately followed by begrudgingly admission that those facts are actually correct ("technically true") to opinion about how Apple (et al) has (legally) done this ("due to the outrageous loopholes in the tax code") and closing with opinions about the fact that they do...
  Forstall was pretty good, if a bit smarmy and slimy looking. JMESHO.
